2.0 out of 5 stars Toho can do better than to create Mothra Nov. 27 2003
By mansoor
Format:DVD
this dvd of godzilla may be thrilling in perhaps the appearance of the monsters or their destructive power.yet...i do not like mothra as it does not have many battle skills and looks feeble and weak....which is why many think that it is brave to stand against Godzilla. mothra makes the fighting scenes terrible..there is no melee combat taking place as it only flies around its opponents like trying to irritate them. in Godzilla vs Mothra, the ending is terrible as i do not believe that godzilla can be defeated by two mothra hatchlings just by being wrapped in a cocoon web. i feel that this rather underestimates the power and might of godzilla.it is also absurd that mothra can produce twins...one which resembles a bat.throwing godzilla into the sea at the end of The Rebirth of Mothra is also a weak ending. as all know, godzilla has the ability to live under water and as other weaker monsters don't die from falling from a height ( as demonstrated in godzilla vs gigan where ghidorah drops anguirus ), it is absurd that the show ends there. i would think that the ending is like this because the two mothra twins have no other way or power to defeat godzilla. on the overall i think that the rebirth of mothra merits only a rental...you probably won't be watching it again after the first...especially since there are better godzilla movies such as terror of mechagodzilla.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Kid Fare! March 10 2003
Format:DVD
Okay, so these aren't adult movies. Let's be honest - how many `adults' in the stereotypical sense will sit through a Godzilla movie. Well, I will. Why the gripe about the Rebirth Of Mothra movies being `geared towards kids?' Just because the kids are the main characters doesn't make it any less entertaining. I guess the main difference between these and the Godzilla movies is there is not a lot of collateral damage. Most of the battles take place in the wilderness away from innocent civilians, and the military never gets involved (I guess so long as the cities are left alone, the Japanese military doesn't care what the monsters do). Hence, G-rated Godzilla...very little chaos and destructiveness, but enjoyable nonetheless. If you're a godzilla fan I'm pretty confident you'll like these, and if you're not, its okay to let the kids see `em. They've got a great anti-industry pro-earth message, and fantastic, four color effects -really superior. With the kids as main characters, younger viewers won't get bored either.
REBIRTH OF MOTHRA - When my nine year old saw this he wept like the Dickens. Remember, the title IS `REBIRTH of Mothra.' But don't worry.... if Sci Fi teaches us anything its that death is never forever. Basically nasty treekillers clearing a path for progress bust open an ancient seal which unleashes Desghidorah (or Death Ghidorah), a black hydra (kind of a four legged King Ghidorah) which drinks the life out of forests. The Elias, those irrepresible Earth First faeries from Infant Island sing that kickin' Mothra song and call up earth's protector (a giant moth, for those unfamiliar with the character) to go and trump Desghidorah, who is being egged on by an evil faerie called Belvera. When the tide turns for the worse, Mothra's (son/daughter?

4.0 out of 5 stars Visually Striking, Imaginative fantasy Films March 22 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The DVD release of these two films is very welcome. Visually, both films look wonderful, with the widescreen transfer a great improvement over the cropped VHS and a nice surround sound. Mothra 1 is a charming fantasy , with enviromental overtones that would carry over to the second movie. The films are in no way realistic, rather like classic movies like The Wizzard of Oz or Kwaidan, work to create a striking visual style that is more colorful and unique than anything found in reality.The films are aimed at the family audience, and only the adults will mind the regretably poor dubbing job that Tri-Star did with these films. The plots are imaginative, if not quite logical. But in a fantasy film like these, that is no problem. The second film is the better of the two, with some breathtaking visual moments. Some sequences such as the Death of the first Mothra and the re-birth of the new Mothra as an adult are stunningly imaginative.And the under sea battle climax of the second movie is great! It's even more amazing when you realize that these films are made for about 4 Million each, and in about 4 months! I recomend these films to kids, and adults who remember the pleasure that movies like this can give.It's just too bad about the dubbing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colorful, Imaginative family fantasy film Feb. 12 2000
Format:DVD
Tri stars DVD release of MOTHRA 1 & 2 are a welcome addition and improvement on the previous VHS versions. The DVD is Letterboxed and Enhanced for 16/9 televisions, and looks great, with fine detail and color. The sound will impress anyone with a suround sound system, with good separation. The only demerit would be tri-stars poor dubbing of these films. There is no real excuse not to have done better. The voices are often mismatched, and the vocal performances sub-standard. In a fantasy film this can be quite distracting, and too often it is blamed on the filmakers rather than the American distributor, where the fault realy lies. As for the movies themselves, they are charming and colorful, if a little confusing. One more re-write would have smoothed out some of the plot points. One of the nice things is that these are films in which the kids are the main protagonists, with few adults intruding to throw a damper on things. Kids and most adults who remember being kids will enjoy them. Visually the films are imaginative, NOT realistic. Realisim comes secondary to a fast pace and colorful visuals. And that is one of the most wonderful things about them. Both films have moments of real beauty, and striking imagination. Best moments of the first film are the death of the older Mothra, sinking slowly beneath the ocean,wings outstreached as if still flying, and the rebirth of the new Mothra, growing from thousands of smaller ones.. The second film is better still, with a climax that finds Mothra morphing into Aqua Mothra, and fighting under the sea. Its amazing to think that both films cost onlyt 4 million each, and that the Special effects, directed by Kochi Kawakitta, were done in just 80 days for each film! Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant and colourfull monster movies
Gratefull monster movies, with a suberb cinematography full of Japanese colours, and a good music. Perhaps too childhood, but with an interesting ecologist subtext.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's nice, but
It's nice to have all these '90s Toho monster movies finally available in the US, and it's certainly worth the money, but I am disappointed with this DVD. Read more
